Oxford First Ancient HistoryBook - 1994
From the threshold of history and the early civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, and China to the glories of Rome and Greece and the fall of the Roman Empire--here's a fascinating tour into the past. Author Roy Burrell has combined The Romans and The Greeks into one beautifully illustrated volume and added lots of new information about other early civilizations. Factual essays are interspersed with "interviews" with characters from the ancient world to make history an exciting time full of real and interesting people. Readers gain an understanding of the development of early civilizations and the techniques historians and archeologists use to explore and interpret events of the past. This is powerful history that brings the ancient world to life for readers ages 11-15.
